Frank PanucciAMIGA DPAINT ANIMS (1988)

something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, I was introduced to both computers and digital animation by the Commodore AMIGA. Recently I found quite a few old anims I made with DPAINT way back when. I edited some of them together randomly, dropped in a music track, and posted the results here. I may get around to posting more collections like this. Or not.

Caution: This has no readily apparent entertainment value, and is of interest only to the very small number of people who want to see unrelated snippets of low-res, aimless animation, produced for no good reason, with long-obsolete hardware.

The frame rates of the old anims are a bit weird, so some of the clips play too fast. It could have been fixed, but mumble, mumble, phhtttt

This was encoded as a VCD-format MPEG1 file. Any other listed formats were generated automatically by the mad robots here at the Prelinger Archives.

I remember the days, although you are much better than I ever was. I was an Amiga hold out until last year when I finally sold my A4000 with Toaster/Flyer. You're right about conversions, sometimes they'd work right, and sometimes they wouldn't. Great fun video, though.

Subject: Great stuff!
Frank,
I loved this. I did some *great* work with DPaintII back when. It was one of my favorite tools. My clients loved it. Your stuff is way better. Maybe I'll post some of mine. It's just plain weird to me to think that some of my professional work might be of "historical" interest!!!???

Subject: For Just Playing Around, These Are Pretty Fun
These are some animated clips a guy made back in the early 90s on his Amiga computer in Dpaint. For animations made while just playing around on a system that is now obsolete, these are pretty fun to watch. I particularly like the starship captain with his silly creature sidekick.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.

Subject: absolutely fascinating
Considering the computer and software used (primitive by todays standards) the results are remarkeable and intriguing. Many of the images have a charm and beauty which is often missing in many modern videos
